Health Care Choices

“Senator, let’s talk about another element of the aptly named ‘Better Care Reconciliation Act.’ That’s what Republicans are calling this bill. And let’s talk about, let’s say, Bridgeport, Connecticut and someone comes up to you and says: ‘You know, I just heard or read bits and pieces about what’s going to be cut under this bill if it passes. Should I go out and buy a pull-out couch for dad who might be coming home from the nursing home?’” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) during a conversation about the Senate Republicans’ health care bill. Listen to Murphy’s response here about some of his constituents who are “freaked out” about potential cuts to Medicaid.
